Profile: I’ve been a Nintendo gamer since the SNES was released, spending a lot of time on Donkey Kong Country with my brother, as well as Super Mario World and Super Mario Kart. The Nintendo 64 meant too much time playing Goldeneye four player when I should have been at college, as well, of course, Mario 64, Banjo-Kazooie and Mario Kart 64. I had the first Gameboy, Gameboy Colour, Gameboy Advance and Gameboy Advance SP, then the first DS when they launched too. I eagerly awaited the arrival of the Gamecube in 2002; on launch I got right into Luigi’s Mansion and Rogue Squadron. I personally loved Super Mario Sunshine (I know many people didn’t) and also played Mario Kart Double Dash more than most I think. When the Wii launched I was there on day one too, waving my arms about the place on Wii Sports and spent a lot of time with Twilight Princess. I love Kid Icarus: Uprising, Super Smash Bros. and Mario Kart 7 on 3DS and on Wii U it's all about Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros. and a bit of Disney Infinity too. I won't mention my growing amiibo collection... My Xbox360 draws my attentions with COD and Battlefield 3, but I still enjoy Mario Kart Wii online multiplayer and haven't finished Mario Galaxy 2 yet so still play that on occasion. In the real world I am the Design and Development manager for agency in West Sussex and I live with my wife and 5 year old daughter – who is quickly becoming a big Nintendo fan herself! I’m a big film fan and lover of new tech’ and I’m quite a fan of cake. I’m on twitter @wesearp and my 3DS Friend code is 0087-2284-1432. Give me yours if you want to hook up. Oh, and I also founded StreetPass Brighton! Check out our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/streetpassbrighton for details on Nintendo gaming events in Brighton.
